Dear Colleagues, 

Thank you for being patient while VNA corrected their COVID -19 Vaccine registration link. It has now been updated to include Moderna and Jenssen vaccines, in addition to Pfizer. You may now choose the vaccine that you would like to receive. 

Please use these links to register for the vaccine:

As noted in the email sent last week:
IMSA has partnered with the VNA to secure first, second, and booster doses of the three COVID-19 vaccines for all eligible staff and students. These vaccines will be given on campus, in room B101 on November 10, December 14, and December 17. If you wish to be vaccinated, you must register for the date you prefer, using the links provided below.
All staff and students who have not been vaccinated, or have had only one dose of Pfizer or Moderna, are encouraged to sign up to be vaccinated. Students under the age of 18 years must have parental consent.

Eligibility for booster doses: 
  • Your second/final dose was more than SIX months ago for Pfizer and Moderna;
  • You received your Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than TWO months ago
  • All IMSA staff and students meet the eligibility for booster doses due to living or working in a high-risk setting since our students live on campus.
Individuals are now able to receive any brand of COVID-19 vaccine for their booster shot. Limited evidence suggests that booster doses of one of the two mRNA vaccines – Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech – more effectively raise antibody levels than a booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The Health Office encourages you to speak with a doctor if you have questions about what booster is right for you. You will chose which vaccine you prefer for the booster dose during your registration.
All persons receiving the vaccine must bring a signed consent and the QR code that was sent to your email when you registered to the appointment. Print the consent form and bring it to your appointment. Students under the age of 18 years old need parents/guardians to sign this consent form.

Do not send consent forms to the health office. Students will need to print and bring their own signed forms.

Helpful tips:
  • A reminder email will not be sent. Please make sure to add your appointment to your calendar. These are set appointment times and "no show" or late appointments may not be accommodated.
  • The QR code (verification pass) needed on the vaccine clinic dates will be emailed to the email you used for registration. Do not delete this email. We recommend using your IMSA email address.
  • Do not schedule an appointment during your class time. 
  • Plan ahead and remember that you will need to be observed for reactions in the vaccine room for 15-30 minutes after the vaccine.
  • Have a full meal and hydrate well before your vaccine.
